In our safe driving tips section you will find a wealth of information on safe driving skills and tips for becoming a better driver.
Other areas you may be interested in include ways to avoid many of the common mistakes both car and motorcycle riders can make that can sometimes lead to accidents on our roads.
If you are unlucky enough to be involved in a road accident you will also find tips and advice on how to cope with the many issues that may arise both at the accident scene and in the days following your accident.
At Car Call we and our partners specialise in dealing with many of these issues as part of the service we and our partners offer. If your accident was not your fault, we can organise repairs to your vehicle at one of our approved accident repair centres and provide you with a quality like-for-like replacement hire vehicle to use while the repairs are being made.
We will look to recover the costs associated with your accident from the at-fault driver's insurer. This means that you should not need to claim through your own insurer and so your no claims discount should not be affected.
If you need assistance with issues such as the recovery of expenses, vehicle recovery costs or compensation, the solicitors we work with can also provide you with all the help and advice that you need.
No need to claim on your insurance
However if you were not at-fault for the accident, you can choose to either claim on your own insurance policy or make a claim independently of your insurer. To find out more call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.
We and our partners help thousands of people make independent accident claims. Our service enables motorists to get the help and assistance they need to resolve their accident related issues, with the costs being recovered directly from the at-fault driver on your behalf.
No excess to pay
This money should of course be recovered by an insurer at a later date, but with our service - you do not have to pay it at all.
By using our independent claims service, you are not making a claim on your insurance policy and so you will have no excess to pay.
